I made a lampshade using scrapbooking paper, some recycled paper that I painted with water colours, two metal rings and yarn.

I think it came out fairly cute, but unfortunately it doesn't go well with my apartment.. Especially shame since I spend over 6 hours making it.

That is stunning. Would you mind sharing how you made that. I love your paper choices and your amazing painting skills. I love the stitch binding especially.

Too bad it doesn't fit with your apartment.. Maybe you could give it to someone as a gift?  Smiley

Oh this is fabulous! I especially love the paper with the ladies in the vintage dresses. Yeah, I second the posting of how you put it together. Smiley I'd love to have something like that hanging in my sewing studio. Great job!!!

This is beautiful.  Too bad it doesn't fit your decor.  Very nicely done.
